The Weight-Loss Journey

Tips for weight loss:-
Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Drinking eight glasses of water is almost like a must. And do not forget to drink water in the morning, the moment you wake up. In fact this is one of the most rapid weight loss tips that the dietitians suggest to the people.

* Keeping a track on the watch, go for an hour walk. It need not be power walking, but definitely it should be non-stop walk and that’s for sure, in a couple of days only, you’ll start finding the difference in you.

* Have organic foods for the breakfast like apples, bananas, plain yogurt, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, raw honey, wild smoked salmon, and so on.

* Another tip regarding how to lose weight fast, easy and safe is that you should have your dinner about 4-5 hours before going off to sleep.

* Eat slowly so that you can get a feeling that you have had enough food and your tummy is full. Eat slowly and fully relish the taste.

How do I comfort someone who is grieving?

When he cries hug him, he will know you love him and it will help him release it. Just by being next to him or near him without saying anything helps, just knowing that there is someone there for him if he needs it. Try to get him something that he likes kind of like a surprise, it will put a smile on his face and let him know that its alright to smile even though he has lost someone that meant so much to him. If he wants to talk about it or anything, talk to him and if he doesn’t just be there and let him know that you are there for him I hope this helps.

What are good books for children grieving a parent’s death?

I really dont think there is books. You just got to be there for them when they want to talk about it. My mom died when i was in 4th grade, and the only way people were able to help me is to give me space, and when i wanted to talk they would be there.

Is there such a thing as insignificant grief?

In my opinion grief is never insignificant. If it touches you to the point that it causes you grief then how can it possibly be insignificant? Calling someone else pain silly or stupid only serves to show the dis-passionate feelings of others who think that. You never know how the other person is feeling, until you have stood in their shoes and felt their pain, no matter how minute and insignificant to you personally, so you will never be able to say that it doesn’t exist.

Getting past the grief of putting down your dog?

I absolutely agree that getting another pet is the best way to get past the pain. They will not replace but rather”refill”your heart.

It is hard but in the long run a kind thing to do.

How do you know when you should seek professional grief counseling?

I’m really sorry for your loss. What could it hurt to try the counseling? If it helps you then at least you can get some help dealing with this and if it doesn’t help then at least you have made an effort. I used to babysit a woman’s children every week while she went to grief counseling but it was a group meeting and it really did help her. I would suggest a group counseling so that you can have support from others that actually do understand what you are going through.

How can I most effectively deal with my sorry and grief over this situation?

Wow, I can see how you feel bad.You just have to realize that a car is just a -thing-. It’s nice to have something to remember someone by, but your aunt was a PERSON and the car is just a THING. Things are temporary, they wear out. Your aunt will live forever in your memory.I’m sure she would forgive you. If she loved you as much as you loved her, she would just be glad you weren’t hurt. (How do you think she’d feel if you suddenly showed up in Heaven and said to her’Hey, Auntie, remember that car you left me? . . .’We ALL make mistakes, it’s just part of being human. Sometimes it’s hard to forgive ourselves, but you know your aunt would forgive you!

Then, Sweetie, you should be happy. It is different with everyone. It all depends on your mind, and some people hold on to years for something they will never have again and torture themselves about it.

I’m so sorry to hear about this. It must be really tough to be going through this.How long ago did this happen?I don’t think there is a set period of time for going through the grieving process.

It all depends on the person and who the person who died was.It might be helpful for you to talk to a mental health professional a few times to help you figure out how to deal with all these emotions.

Any help with grief of putting down family cat while overseas?

For you and your mother, I would suggest spending lots of time together doing activities to take your mind off it. Remember the good times you had with your cat as these happy memories might help you through it. Having her over will help you a lot and the two of you can support each other. Maybe ask to have photos of the cat when he/she was alive and well sent over to you for this.As far as your dad goes, call him a lot and try to keep him as much in your life as you can with the distance. Offer your support and help him through it in the best way you know how. It would be nice for you to try and visit him, but if this is too difficult maybe consider webcams for the two of you so you can at least see and talk to each other. It might make it seem less lonely.

What will happen if a person is grief-stricken for a very long period?

There is much that can happen to a prolonged grief stricken person. This is especially true for some who is an elder.Grief induces a stress reaction in the body. Prolonged stress is not good for anyone. In addition, such a person (elderly or not) becomes depressed due to the prolonged grief.Grief can be dysfunctional if too prolonged. This is an impaired grief response.Grief is something that someone does not”just get over.”There are definite stages to grief but anyone can get”stuck”in a given stage, not moving beyond. Stress due to dysfunctional grieving impacts the whole body.In turn, anything affecting the body impacts the mind and vice versa. Certainly stress (whatever the source), can impact the heart impairing cardiac function.If the stress is great, then blood pressure can become elevated. Elderly people often already have physical problems. Stress can exacerbate these, causing further physical problems.By the way, it is possible for someone to die from a broken heart. Grief counseling is common and available for those who need it. In addition, an antidepressant can often be helpful in someone overcoming feelings of depression related to grief.While this is a simplistic answer I hope it helps.

What is the best way to deal with grief?

My twin died when we were 20. I found talking to others to be helpful. I also wrote an article about my experience and I share it every year with others on our birthday. (I’ve been told it helps others needing to grieve.)The best thing is to allow yourself to grieve. But not for too long. The thing that helped me is realizing how upset my twin would have been if I let her death ruin my life. So I gradually started living again. I’m still sad at our birthday, her death day, and holidays. But I try to hang on to the positive memories.

How can you really define the difference between grieving and depression?

you are definitely grieving. Depression is a state of mind that you can’t get out of, its a mood altering disorder of sorts and anything can cause it, even something little. Grieving usually deals with death in my point of view I think that you should confront the situation, and you need to deal with the emotions that you’re feeling. I think that the psychologist appointment is a very good idea. You just need to come to terms with what happened.Good luck! Sorry about the baby.
